Very disappointing park given its name and the golf resort. The sites are plenty big enough for rigs of all sizes, but it seems that maintenance is way behind schedule. The weeds are abundant and the cobwebs suggest that not too many folks stay here. The 9-hole golf course has not had any irrigation for a long time and it is not playable. The I-5 is visible but not a significant noise problem. The location of this park closer to Sacramento than Redding and south of Corning should make it desireable for many heading south from Oregon, or from SoCal folks going north who made it through Sac and need a resting place. However, new management, money and/or some promoting of this park may be needed to make it work in the long run. I hope that this place gets turned around. I want to return.
The check in procedure was uncomfortable for due to the unfriendliness of the staff. The Wi-Fi was awful despite the assurances to the contrary. Next door is a theme Park with lots of loud speaker noise and music that travels into the RV Park. The sites have reasonable spacing and the utilities work well. However, I didn't experience enough positives here to warrant a return visit.
This National Park has so many sites that there's bound to be something for everyone. I was told that reservations are a must for the best 50% of the sites and they fill up fast. About 25% are not so good, either being really unlevel or not enough vegetation buffer between the sites. I saw quite a few 32 to 38 foot motor homes in the sites so most rigs will fit. Agree with previous poster about signage. I missed the sign and travelled 15 miles up hwy 10 before I could unhook and turn around. The problem is the sign to the campground is so busy with other things that a newbie to this park can easily miss the turn. Nice little town to stroll around, stop in the visitor center and or have an ice cream. The biggest improvement I think is needed, is another dump station. The lines were quite long on Sunday morning with people checking out. Also, I think quiet hours should be after 10pm, not 11 pm. It was quite noisy from 9-11pm on Friday and Saturday nights and nobody doing anything about it. Even so, this is another of Canada's nice national parks.
Located 7-8 minutes away from shopping and located 2 miles south of the junction of 17 and 69. New owners in the past year and they are working hard to make this a really nice place. Very accommodating and friendly. They were finishing up with the installation of a new dump station and because it wasn't going to be operative for a few hours, the owner came over and pumped me out an no charge. I could have waited but he insisted. The sites are grass and long enough for big rigs but probably need to be rolled to smooth out some of the bumpiness. Some tree work is needed also. New high speed Wi-Fi was being installed while we were here. I would stay here again and would expect it its rating to increase after the improvements.
Pleasant park with caring owners. Flowers are everywhere making it very pleasant. The few big rig pull throughs aren't as nice as the other sites, as they are close together. I will stay here again but will unhook and back into a better site.
No problems to report about this RV Park, except it was too pricey for what we received. The site was fine, the power was consistent and the water pressure good. I agree mostly with the comments below. Would consider an alternative RV park or campground next time due to price/value.
This Provincial Park was disappointing for me but has the potential to be very good. The best sites in the park are at the lower level along the river. Most aren't big enough for 5th wheels and motor homes and none have electricity. The sites higher up have virtually no view of the river and are way overgrown. These have electricity but the electric posts are so far away from the site that an extension is need. I rented one from the park and it and my regular cord just barely reached the post. Many of the pull-throughs are among the most unlevel sites anyone could imagine and the tree limb growth scrapes the top of any rig taller than 10 feet. There is no Wi-Fi, no store or no services other than firewood. If you have a tent, a pop-up, a B-van or a small camper, getting a site on the water may be rewarding for you as the views are nice. To be a really good park, much tree work is needed, the electric posts need to be moved closer to the site, the pull-throughs leveled and maybe 25% of sites along the water having electricity would be the steps to take.
This RV park was a disappointment to me. The sites are close together and are basically unleveled grass. Some are difficult to negotiate given the trees. Wi-Fi was awful. The owner was friendly and gave me choices of sites but there weren't any good ones of the five she offered. We moved on after one night and would not return.
Very nice National Park on Lake Superior. The campsites are spaced well and are mostly woodsy with good privacy. Wi-Fi is available at the visitor center. Really helpful ranger/warden with lots of good ideas, suggestions and answers. There are trails to walk and explore including a boardwalk on the way to the cove. Both of my GPS units failed to get me on the right road here so for routing purposes take hwy 627 south from Hwy 17 near Marathon and it will lead you to the park. No store, so bring provisions. I would return here.
This is a terrific RV park for those with children. So much to do. See the website. If you want peace and tranquility this is not your place, however. The park has everything for families, is well run and even though many of the sites are quite close together, it is a place for kids of all ages. I would not stay here again, but would be if I was with my children or grandchildren. I give it a high rating because it is an extremely well run park for children.
Well run park with approximately 50% seasonals but lots of nice sites for visitors. Site spacing is good, pads are level and many sites have views of the St Laurence River looking East. Wi-Fi is excellent but there is a $5 per day charge. Should be included for the daily rate of $36. It seems that most sites do not have shared connection posts quite common on the Gaspe. Another positive is that I did not see any side-by-side hookups. Other than a teenager at the check-in kiosk, nobody speaks English. This could make it difficult for some who speak no French. Would stay here again.
We were looking for an RV park for a couple of nights so that we could have the full hookups and take the toad out to explore this part of the Gaspe Peninsula. This worked well for us. Even though the sites back up against your neighbor, they are long sites and it is easy for rear bumpers to be 20 feet away from each other. There is decent spacing on sides, too. Excellent Wi-Fi at no charge. The owners don't speak much English but they try and communications work out OK. We would stay here again.
This park is better than Lake Superior Provincial Park, its sister park 150 miles up the highway. There are more Lake Superior view sites here and much more privacy between sites. This provincial park like others in Ontario, has its electric post so far away from the site that an extension is needed. We were able to get a 30amp ext. cord from the ranger after providing a deposit. Even though this park has serious root upheaval problems on the roads that need fixing and some tree trimming to keep from damaging skylights and air conditioner shrouds, it is still a fine place to stay and we would definitely stay here again. The closest Wi-Fii is a restaurant about 5 miles south on hwy 17. Good food and free Wi-Fi.
This provincial park is on the lake and a few sites have really nice views. Most of the sites don't have electricity. The elec sites are mostly set up for trailers and smaller vehicles. While there are a few sites for motorhomes 32-34 feet, there aren't many, and the trees are difficult to maneuver around. The staff could not have been better in assisting us. Our site was hugely unlevel and almost 50 feet away from the electric post and unreachable with my power cord. Yet, the staff worked hard to get us moved to an acceptable site and we appreciated that especially on a holiday weekend. The attraction here is the lake shore and the staff. The sites need reworking and should be better for this price.
The rate reflects a weekly rate. The sites are really close together. Your neighbor's sewer hose is next to your table. It is noisy due to I-5 road traffic. There is no Wi-Fi and no cable TV. No reason for me to come back here.
I really like this RV park. We were here a few years ago and the owners have added so much more ambience in the interim including plants, flowers and the trees have matured to allow for additional shade in the summer. This is a great stop over spot as well as a place to stay a few days when anyone wants to explore the city of Missoula and its surroundings. Costco, Wal-Mart, Lowes, Home Depot and great Super Markets before you move on to the wonderful sights and places in this area. Staying here is quiet and within a few mile of everything. Almost forgot: great Wi-Fi.
This isn't a great park but it is very much a solid over night stop with a lot of level sites, a friendly owner, good water pressure and far enough from I-15 that road noise wasn't an issue. I would stay here again while in the area. Other notes: it is a gateway to Glacier National Park, has a top notch truck and RV welding operation town (which fixed my RV problems) has an Albertsons and the nicest and cleanest Subway I've ever been to.
This is a really nice campground in Fundy National Park. The cost is an estimate because I lost the receipt, but it is close. We bought the Parc Canada Pass to get this good price. The camp sites are what most people want in a campground in that they are spacious, woodsy and perfect for a campfire. We were delighted to learn that wi-fi was available and for free. Just park somewhat near the restrooms and you will get a decent signal. The check in is smooth as one would expect from National Park Canada employees. Having 2-way connection was also nice. This park is not far from Alma where there are stores and restaurants and a view of the Fundy tide influence. Would definitely return here again.
Another great National Park in Canada's system. There is not a bad site in this huge campground. If it is windy, however, get a site away from the water otherwise a campfire might be questionable. Wi-Fi is now available to many sites. My site was near the water in an open area and I could see the Wi-Fi tower on a building near the bathrooms. We had 5 bars of high speed Internet. Really nice for a public campground. The check in was so smooth because of the quality of the staff. The many walks along the beach and other places were memorable. Definitely recommend this wonderful place.
This RV park is an OK 1-2 night park. It is very heavy with seasonals which is alright, but there is just something about people with patios and flags and huge barbecue grills next to you that takes away from the RV campground ambiance many of us like. The park is really clean, the people are friendly and many, if not most, of the sites are decently spaced. Trees are in and around most sites but not woodsy. Campfires are allowed but I noticed that many of the seasonals keep the fires at very low levels so as not to smoke out the neighbors. Wi-Fi is free but terribly slow. They need an upgrade in this. Security is really good. Nobody enters the campground without a supplied security card to open the gate. Would stay here again if passing through but this would not be a destination park for me.
We really enjoyed this public campground not too far from Toledo on Lake Erie. Stayed here for 4 nights and enjoyed the peacefulness, privacy, and beauty of park. It would be a little better if water spigots were at the sites but it wasn't a problem. The state of Ohio is doing a great job with this location. Would stay here again.
Everything about this RV park is outstanding. This is one of those rare parks that not only does everything right but the people here do it with a smile and a pleasant attitude. The view is spectacular of the Five Islands off the coast looking into the Bay of Fundy. We chose the ocean front premium site but there are other less expensive sites that still have a view. The ocean front view is a 180-degree panorama. Awesome. The owner tells me that they just installed high speed Wi-Fi and I can attest that it is super fast, probably the best I have experienced in eastern Canada. The sites are gravel and level, water pressure is great, electric, water, sewer hookups are together on the correct side (hooray!) and there are no side by side or doubling up on the utilities. If you buy firewood they will deliver it to your site. Can't say enough good things about this place and can't find a single thing wrong except possibly no cable, but heck who needs TV with this view? I will stay here again.
Whiddens is a fine campground with much to offer different types of campers. Some sites are back to back but many are not. The spacing is actually quite good for a campground in a downtown area. The park is very well maintained and attractive with lots of trees and a comfortable feeling.. Some of the sites on the river without hookups could be really nice. We were there on a fringe time of year so it was difficult to know what it is like when filled up but we would return here even if crowded. Excellent wifi and a really clean washer/dryer room. Great location for many things to do and also a Sobeys and WalMart nearby.
After reading the previous reviews I couldn't wait to get to the RV park for 3-4 days. However, when I got here I found an overcrowded RV park with a large number of seasonals and an awful lot of the sites available to overnighters were terrible. Front end to rear bumper sites made it difficult to get out of. We actually had to back out our 32-footer and hookup later. Crazy. Couldn't sit at the outside table because it sloped so much. Then there were the folks who had a campfire. I love campfires but not in an RV park where sites are so close. The smoke smell filled our RV. As to check in, the road coming in makes the folks checking in stop on a pretty severe up slope before finding out the assigned site. While some folks like this place, this should not be a 9/10/10 on TL's book. A place with such inconsistencies should be much lower rated.
This is a wonderful RV Park. I almost downgraded it to an 8 or a 9 because the beautiful sites on the water are all set up for trailers and not motor homes. This means that when a MH pulls in to the best sites to have a view the connections are on the wrong side. Disappointment for us. Bummer that the designers didn't have the planning to cater to all RVers and put posts on each side. That having been said, everything about this place is first class. Dave, one of the bosses, was totally in charge, the maintenance folks were ever present in fact all employees were so very pleasant and helpful, the power was consistent, water pressure was perfect and the views from the ocean sites were to die for. So, forget about the 8 or 9 rating for one little design flaw. This place is among the finest RV parks in all of America (and we have RV'd in 33 states.) Can't wait to return since our 5 nights weren't enough.
I agree with virtually everything reviewed by others so I won't be redundant except to reiterate the complaints about dogs. It was insulting to charge $5 per night per dog. We have 2 dogs that together don't make up the size of a Cocker or a Beagle and it cost us $10 per night extra. Furthermore, the pet areas available are some of the least desirable including one loop that is over crowded with virtually all seasonals and another with no cable. My impression is that these folks don't give a hoot about dog owners. What a shame because it is a pretty good park otherwise.
This is a great RV park that is run beautifully. Full hookups with good water pressure, consistent amps, level sites, relaxing setting and good access to beaches and this beautiful part of Maine. I would return here in a heartbeat.
We loved everything about this place. A terrific combination of RV Park and Campground. Level grass sites and beautiful surroundings. We would easily spend a week here but need to move on after only 2 nights. Also, it has a really close proximity to Notre Dame for those who are interested. Great hosts.
The storms were building up on I-80 and we were seeking refuge. This RV park was better than we expected. The roads into it were fine abd the sites were level and more than adequate with some nice views. We were in a fringe time of year so there weren't many RVers so this made it nice. During the high season, however, it looks like they pack them in bumper to bumper which may not be so good. Nice hosts.
I agree with others that the setting is nice but that is more than offset by the totally unlevel dirt/gravel sites. I have jacks on the motor home and still needed blocks. The pull-throughs are shorter than most RV parks. I had a full-hookup site and it had no cable and the sites have enough trees that it blocks the satellite signal. We checked out a day early.
Summerdale Campground is located in the Sierra National Forest one and a half mile south of Yosemite National Park entrance on Hwy 41. The CG is a single loop around a grassy meadow full of wildflowers and shade for most sites is provided by Cedar, Fir and Cottonwood trees. This campground offers good fishing and cool summertime temperatures. I gave it a 7 rating not because of facilities but because of the setting and site size. All sites have tables, fire rings and grills. About half the sites are 20-footers with the balance being 30 and 40-foot pads. The campground loop is narrow and might be difficult to negotiate for a very long trailer. Motorhomes should disconnect their toads when checking in. The camp host isn't real friendly and is hardly ever around so if you have a need get to him when you see him. Water bibs (with threads) are scattered throughout the loop. Vault toilets. No showers or dump station. The sites are rustic and very pretty and could be a good option for Yosemite NP visitors who don't have a reservation in the Park. Reservations can be made between Memorial Day and Sept 30 but not for a specific site number. This CG qualifies those with a senior discount pass for a $10 rate.
This is a very nice RV Park with just about all of the amenities one needs. The sites are wide enough, many have good shade trees, the Wi-Fi worked well and we found the pad relatively level and barely needed the jacks. This is our second visit here and even though it is a little pricey, we will return next time through the area.
This county park is really nice except that budget cuts are playing a negative role here. Too many sites don't allow a 11-12 foot high RV to access them because of over hanging branches that normally would easily allow it to set up. What a shame. One guy working a few hours per week could fix this problem. Guess it's just part of the not-my-job culture as lots of workers are doing other things at this park and in my opinion could fix the problem in two days. I will not go back to this wonderful place until I can be assured that over hanging branches and limbs won't damage my roof a/c's and satellite dish. On the plus side, the setting is terrific, the sites are mostly spacious, the young lady at the front gate was very accommodating, the Peacocks were entertaining and the Summer weather was wonderful (warm during the day and perfect for sleeping.)
This is a US Forest Service/BLM property located on the Bush Highway south of the junction of Usery Mountain road. It is not much more than a really big parking lot but has USFS camp hosts and locked gates at night. Situated at the confluence of the Salt and Verde Rivers, there are nice views and excellent fly fishing. RVers are in expensive coaches to Class C's to tents along the river. The hosts worked hard and were ever present in doing their jobs. I guessed at the number of sites because RVers can park any way they want, much like most BLM properties. The fee of $6 is reduced to $3 for seniors with a U.S. seniors pass. Last point: a resident bald eagle passed overhead at least once a day during our 3 days here.
I think this is the best of Maricopa County parks. The sites are great with only 5 of 38 somewhat undesirable. All others are special. It is the best managed in terms of the well organized and efficient teams of of volunteers/hosts. The 180 degree views look southward towards Phoenix and Scottsdale with awesome sunsets. The proximity to shopping at Cave Creek and Scottsdale makes this a wonderful place for snow birds. There is a 2 week maximum stay but some people vacate the site, go into the overflow for a night and then re-up again. Way to go, Maricopa and the park superintendant for doing it right.
Well laid out. Good sites, mostly and reasonably level. A few sites are too narrow for slideouts but most are plenty wide. The check-in hosts are accommodating if you don't like your site. National Park Service rates of half price ($6.00) apply to seniors with the pass. Don't forget to take the 20+ mile scenic drive in this park to experience the beauty of the cacti from this area. Don't do that in a motorhome or trailer, though.
In my opinion this is the best of the Arizona State Park system. Spacious sites separated by grass, rocks and mesquite trees makes it uniques for this area. So many Arizona parks are mostly cactus which, while pretty, are not very much fun when humans or pets brush against them. Located off highway 77 in Catalina, north of Tucson: this park has many different types of trails, good bird life, backs up against the mountains and is really beautiful. Campfires are not allowed here. The toilets/showers were spotless. This park really needs an overflow area. If the park is full, you will be turned away. Unlike other public parks whereby they will let you in at a reduced rate to await a site opening up, Catalina SP leaves the money on the table by sending campers down the road to some other place. There is so much space in the park, it is hard to understand why a parking lot can't be cleared to accommodate folks at $18 a night like others do. Oh well. Guess Arizona has lots of money.
Well managed Arizona state park with lots of really nice sites, some with views of the Colorado River. It is quite popular with winter visitors from the North as well as summer water sports enthusiasts. Winter is quiet and peaceful. Summer is a wild party atmosphere. When the park isn't full, you can pick out your own site, which is nice since not everyone has the same preferences. There aren't too many services nearby but Parker to the south and especially Lake Havasu City to the north will have just about anything anybody needs. If you are a golfer, try Emerald Canyon located between Buckskin and Parker. It is a terrific course at a reasonable price. The best closest dining is at the Indian Casino south near Parker.
Located near Mesa and Apache Junction, this is a good park. While not as well run as its sister park, Cave Creek, it never the less is more than adequate. The hosts are very rigid in terms of site selection and seemingly have little interest in helping RVers get into a preferred site. The manager must wield a heavy hand since we heard that "manager won't allow" it many times including when we asked hosts for recommendations on where to go for laundromats and propane and they couldn't tell us. About one-third of the sites need lots of leveling. The sites on the outside perimeter of the park have the best views and privacy. Virtually all types of shopping is available within a few miles. This is a favorite of snow birds based on the number of license plates from Canada, Minnesota and Michigan. One other note. Sandy, the resident birder, is very helpful and knowledgeable for those interested in the bird-life of this region.
Maricopa County has some really nice campgrounds with great sites, however this place was a little bit disappointing. The pluses are the views looking eastward toward the Valley of the Sun (Phoenix) are wonderful, the mostly spacious sites and the great hiking and biking trails. The negatives are no water at the sites, no dump station at all, 40% unlevel sites and one bathroom building for 40 sites with only a single shower for each of the men and women sides in the building. The ratio of toilets/showers to campers is disappointing. Generator hours are from 8am to 10pm which might be improved by having only a morning an early evening period such as 7-9am and 4-7pm.
I stayed at this RV park in 2006 and failed to review it on this site but should have. It is a really good overnight stop with bigger than normal sites, great free Wi-Fi, no road or train noise like the RV parks closer to the city, a very clean operation, friendly ownership and a really great bargain especially compared to the competition a few miles away charging 50% more than this place. It is also very dog friendly in that there are two big and clean leash-free areas for the dogs. I write this review from this RV Park and plan to stay here next time when we will stay for an extra night and fully explore historic Route 66.
Terrific state park mainly because of the way it is run. A large number of volunteer/hosts keep it operating smoothly. The upper loop has some views but has no trees and could be subject to wind. The lower loop has more developed trees but the sites are a little closer together. The outside row of the lower loop has nice sites such as 19, 20, 21, 22 and 23. Good hiking and fishing is in walking distance. Beautiful Sedona is only about 20 minutes away. We are here now and will stay a total of 7 nights. Arizona State Parks has another gem.
We only overnighted here but liked it a lot. The park is for 55+ folks, is clean as a whistle, has decent sized sites for an RV park, shrubs between the sites and has great free wifi. Nice people own/run this place. Would stay here again.
We went out of our way to stop here because of past good experiences with almost all of Arizona’s state parks and in large part because of the reviews on this website. We were not disappointed. This is a good one. We planned to stay 2-3 nights but decided to take advantage of this park’s nice setting on a small lake, good sites(some with lake views) and great value. The daily rate is $16 but they offer 2 free nights when you stay/pay for five. So, $80 for a week equals about $11 a night! We are really enjoying our week here. About half of the sites are reservable which is a nice feature that not many AZ state parks offer. The bathrooms will probably need some refurbishing soon with newer fixtures and flooring but they are very clean.
This special campground was just as good in 2009 as it was when we stayed here previously in March 2006. The sites are very well spaced and the trees have shown a lot of growth. Most people stay here for one or two nights while visiting the caverns but we liked it so much we stayed for 5 nights and used it as a base to take daily drives in the toad to different places like Sierra Vista, Fort Huachuca, Tombstone and even Bisbee. Reservations are not accepted but you will have a good chance of getting in during the busy season if you check in between 8-10am. Two traveler notes to pass on in the area. If you get off I-10 at hwy 92 to go to the caverns be watchful of your two choices of fuel. The Shell was $2.62 and the gas station across the street was $2.03. According to the clerk at Shell, there is always a huge spread in price. Second, Sierra Vista has just about anything you might need from supermarkets to retail stores (Walmarts, Marshalls, Target, etc) and virtually any type restaurant you could want. Kartchner Caverns State Park is a don’t miss place with an awesome cave and a terrific campground.
This park is not as well managed as the other 7 state and county parks in AZ that we stayed at on this trip. Most of the sites are just average-to-not very good. Neighboring sites are frequently too close, either behind or beside. When campers fire up the campfire, the smoke fills everyone’s rigs. The best electric sites by far are 26, 24 and 22 which are really spacious, private and back up to the lake with a partial view. Only 34 of the 106 sites have elec and water, and people are aggressively seeking these sites every morning. Not sure if there are any workcampers or hosts because we never saw anyone ride through to check out the sites. Two vehicles maximum per site but a few people jammed 3-4 vehicles in their sites and nobody in authority questioned it. Some camper’s music blared during the day, which really needed a ranger to get them to lower the noise. The trees needed trimming as backing in to some sites resulted in branches scraping the RV. This is a world class area for birding and there seems to be a lot of fishermen enjoying this small lake as well as families enjoying the outdoors. Better management, more hookup sites and better site design are needed. We may not return until improvements are made.
Very well run park. Very popular in Jan-Mar so get here early in the AM. Sites are assigned as they become available.Almost all of the sites are nice and big rig friendly with lots of room.No ground fires but there is a bbq grill. I've been travelling for 6 weeks on this trip, have stayed in 8 campgrounds and this is definitely one of the best. Good trails and bir watching. The views of the Catalina Mtns at sunset are great. Shopping of all types is available within a few miles, including a nice library facility. Ask at the check-in kiosk for info. Am exending my stay here tonight just to enjoy this nice place and all the things that there are to do in Tucson. Defiitely will stay here again.
One more good campground in the Maricopa County system. The sites are very spacious but many need a little work to level the rigs even with hydraulic jacks. The check in kiosk has info on where to go for laundry and food shopping but you have to ask. They don't hand out any info sheets. They didn't even know where to go to find free wifi. Re wifi, Mesa libraries don't let you get your email when using their system so there is no wifi option there. Good hiking trails as well as an archery and rifle range close by. Beautiful sunset views. I would staye there again but only if I couldn't get into Cave Creek.
Located east of the junction of I-17 and AZ74, this county campground is very, very nice with great sites, beautiful views and decent hiking trails. Get to this campground early as it is very popular and you may need to wait in the overflow area for a night or two in the Jan-Mar period. A 2-week limit is regulated but the county closes it’s eyes to snow birds who continue to re-up every two weeks. This crazy policy limits the options for travelers and visitors. Site 10 is terrific but 11 and 34 are too close together. Also avoid site 25 which is much too close to the overflow area. Only other thing this place needs to make it perfect would be sewer hookups although there are 2 dump stations which is pretty good for a campground of only 38 sites.
Located north of Phoenix, this county park is another gem in the Maricopa County system. There are multiple loops some with hookups, some without. It’s a well run park that was virtually sold out every night in January, but the winds from the north were a problem 3 of the 5 nights we were there. Serious winds enough to keep boats off the water and seriously rock RVs are enough to figure out whether certain times of the year are worse than others. I would not return here in January even though the views are unbelievably beautiful.
This campground is quite remote being 37 miles from any services. Many sites had beautiful views of this lake. While it is a nice place for off road (OHV) vehicles, there are not any loud noises from these vehicles. Most, in fact, are quite expensive and well muffled. Over half the sites are quite spacious. There are some really nice non-hookup sites available really close to the water. I would stay here again.
The best attributes of this park is that it is somewhat protected from Moab's winds, and that it is walking distance to shops and restaurants. The negatives are that the sites are too close together and short; Rvers are allowed to hang clothes lines; the handles on the dryers were broken and the dog area is awful. Think I'll try another RV Park next time I'm in Moab.
No question this a good RV park, although site size varies quite a bit. Select a "premium" site for only a few bucks more. I'm only giving it an 8 because an RV Park this size should have free Wi-Fi instead of charging. The Wi-Fi also doesn't reach all parts of the park. This is 2008. Wi-Fi isn't a luxury, anymore. Also, they cut out the shuttle to the strip. Big disappointment since the full page TL ad promotes it.
This review is for the Cottonwood campground of Rifle Gap SP. This cg has a base rate of $17 per night, but when you add the reservation fee through Reserve America and the State of Colorado's double dipping charge of an additional $6 per night a 3-day total of $80 makes this an expensive State Park. The sites are really nice especially #6. Shade covers over all tables. There is water and electric at the sites but no sewer. There is a good sewer dump, though. There is easy access from I-70, Rifle, Or. When in town, consider Mac's Cafe for free Wi-Fi. They also have a world-class cinnamon bun on the menu among other goodies. I would stay at Rifle Gap again.
There is more than one campground in this park. This review applies to Iron Creek which has the hookups. I think there are 45 sites. All sites are spacious. Many of the sites have 50 amp. Some have shade canopys over the tables. My favorite sites are # 41 and 22. If you have a boat and want to beach it near your site you could consider #24 and #26. Good fishing lake. Fabulous camp host at #14 who keeps an eye on things without being over present.
This park is so much better than parks closer to Colorado Springs. The sites are good size, the people are really friendly and it has a good proximity to a zillion scenic and tourist things to do. The "premium" sites up on the hill seem to be the best for big rigs and people who want even more space. We were in #83 which worked well for us. One other point, for people who want to overnight in a cabin on the property, this RV Park has some really nice small cabins available for one or more nights.
This small campground is in great proximity to one of the West's most awesome views. The view from Dead Horse Point is unbelievably beautiful both at sunset and sunrise. The campground has a few big sites. I like site #1 for size and privacy. Campfires were not allowed when we were there. Nice roof covering the picnic table. Outside storage provided. Must bring in drinking water. No water available. Dump station avail but no water to rinse hose. Despite the negatives, this campground is a gem. I would definitely stay here again.
This is one of the better parks in the Estes Park area. It is clean, quiet with gravel roads thgroughout the park. The sites aren't really deep but they are wide. Very friendly people run this RV Park. Excellent free wifi service. Satellite window best for sites closest to the river. Fishing and miniature golf for the kids is available in this RV park. It is sort of tacky to have a daily charge for cable and for dogs given the $39 off season rate. I would likely stay here again, mainly because of the wide sites.
This review is for Moraine Campground. We liked this campground better than Glacier Basin 5 miles away. This place is very well maintained. The sites are clean and the trees are trimmed for easy maneuvering into the site. There are some sites long enough for 40-footers such as #245 where a 42-foot Beaver stayed for several days. There are several other sites for larger rigs but not too many will allow slide outs. The roads around the loops are fairly wide and well paved. About half the sites at Moraine have descent wind protection. Rangers, park employees and camp hosts drove the loops regularly making this campground in Rocky Mountain National Park a good and safe place to stay. I would definitely stay here again.
This is a good State Park on a small reservoir. OK to fish or canoe. Hard working Rangers (including the head Ranger) are always present keeping the park clean and neat and disciplined. Excellent guided hike by Ranger up to the petrified wood area. Lots of sites are unlevel but all are on pavement. Bigger units should request #20 and #13. Also, in the fringe season, the Camp Host site could be avail for surcharge and get electric hookups (need to ask when you get here.)
Best park, with hookups, near Capitol Reef National Park. Sites are reasonable size but when an RV'er wants to have a campfire, it's too close to their neighbor. Good store and really friendly people. Great price for what you get. Wi-Fi is a little slow but it's free. The view to the North is really, really awesome especially at sundown. Ask for an end site like #29.
One of the better KOAs. Stayed in a site in the rear, up on a hill, and had a nice view. Sites aren't paved, but are a hard compressed rock material. Most sites level. Only a few miles from Bryce Canyon NP makes this an ideal place to see the Park. It's a better RV Park than those at Rubys inn, too. Spotless rest rooms and laundry. After doing the laundry, owner offered to drive my wife back to the site with the clean clothes.
Think this campground is only about 4 years old. My GPS couldn't even find it. Friendly check-in. Nicely laid out with good size back-ins and huge pull throughs. Sites 22-27 are high up with a 360 degree view. All 50 sites have a table with cover, BBQ and fire pit. OHV riding is allowed but only in an area away from the CG. There is a contiguous area of 16,000 acres of prime off-road riding. Boating, fishing, and relaxing make this a really nice place. Negatives are lack of any grass and it could be hot in the summer.
This is a park with great southwestern views, good trails for hiking and bike riding. However, the RV elect sites are closer together than the worst of any KOA sites. Picture side by sides on the hookup side and about 8-feet on the other. These are the worst hookup sites in the Utah State Park system. On the other hand many of the non-hookup sites are really nice and big and spacious. This is a 10 for none hookups and a 1 for hookup sites.
This is a very nice park that is friendly to all size RVs. At $42 it's a little pricey for a mid Oregon city and the competition. The laundry room is really clean but they should invest in more washer-dryers. People were waiting both days that we were here. Site space is reasonable for a RV park. The breakfast and newspaper is a nice plus each morning. Safety and cleanliness is top-notch. Wal Mart, Costco, Safeway and Fred Meyer are all close by.
This state campground has the best sites of any campground in the Oregon park system. They are wide, deep with well developed shrubs between the sites. It is windy, here, being on the Cape but what a wonderful place to relax, enjoy the Lighthouse, the beaches and the quaint town of Port Orford.
This park seems to get the extremes of the reviews. I think it's a decent park with wide spaces and except for the grass needing to be cut, it was in good shape. The location is convenient to major hwys and tourist things to do. Biggest problem as stated in a prior review is that the WiFi doesn't have any range at all. I was within 150 feet of the office and barely got a signal. They really should invest in a tower.
Understanding that this place is a campground not a rv park, I gave it an 8. The sides are big, it has huge tables, a nice fire pit, TV stations of FOX, CBS, NBC and a few others but not ABC. Most sites have a "satellite view." The best sites back up to the water: 1,3,5,7,9,11,13,15,16; Next best sites are 2,4,6,8,10,12,14. Trains are not a real big problem in these sites. Good fishing and bird watching. $19 rate reflects a $2 senior citizen discount. We liked it a lot.
Very good, well managed RV park with reasonably spaced sites and able to handle even the biggest rigs. They are building a brand new clubhouse which will be operational inn the Fall. There is a 9-hole golf course contiguous to the RV park that is in fairly good shape and a full complement of par 3, 4 and 5's. WiFi is available throughout 3/4 of the park. This is a good base camp for exploring Joshua Tree National Park.
This is one of the nicest RV parks on hwy 395. Site space is reasonable for a RV park, the management is very friendly and virtually all of the rv park amenities are available. There is a fair amount of shade given the desert environment. The views of the Sierra mountains are beautiful. Only negative is a really high fee for wifi at $7.95 per day. Thinks this park and others need to figure out that wifi is becoming a really big factor in selecting a rv park. Part of this selection process is not having to pay usury charges for what we think is important. Despite this, it is a good place to stay for days, even weeks.
After reading the previous rating, I'll be really generous and give this park a 5. The sites are narrow and are at right angles making it difficult to back in from a narrow road. The park is mostly permanents or semi permanents. The morning sprinklers sprayed water all down the side of my mh leaving water spots from a high mineral water. The only two positives were the friendly lady at check in and the fact that the park has lots of trees which could be a real advantage during the heat of the Mojave summer.
Local Tupelo residents will be upset when they see this review and more of the RV world reads about this great Mississippi state park. The sites are big, there are lots of trees and it's set on a small but pretty lake. Go to the Ms. state park website to see a few pictures. This is a destination place that's great for families, too. Your secret is out Tupelo.
In my view this rv park has more pine trees and a prettier setting than any commercial park from Flagstaff to Williams. The sites are a crushed gravel-type material and most are fairly level. It would have been nicer if there was a little more room between sites but none of the other parks are generous in this respect. New ownership needs to do a few things like add cable and do a little site grooming. Limited TV service can be gotten from an antenna but it's not real clear. The biggest negative is the park's proximity to the railroad tracks. The BNSF is very active along this stretch of I-40 and the engineers blow the train horn 4 times each time it passes by the area both east and westbound. We had a nice campfire amidst the aromatic pines in the evening. I would stay here again.
The Johnson Branch of the Ray Roberts Lake is on the northern side and the sites seem to be better than on the southern side. The campground is as good as it gets with great, wooded sites in a wonderfully serene atmosphere, even if you're not boating. The $28 fee includes Texas' "enter-the-park" fee of $8.00.
What a gem this place is. Desert camping in the middle of the 2nd largest canyon in the U.S. Huge sites with a wood canopy over the table. The sunsets are spectacular. The price includes $8 to get into the park and $20 for the campsite. If you're staying for more than a few days the price is less since the park entrance fee is a one time charge. This park is wonderful for hiking, bicycling or just relaxing and admiring the beauty of the desert.
Ths is a very nice RV Park. It's clean, well organized, has lots of shade trees, reasonable spaced sites, level concrete pads, nice laundry and a pretty good free continental breakfast. If they made the dog run a little better with some grass and offered free WiFi instead f charging for it, I would have given it a 10. After looking at all the other Albuquerque RV options, we found this to be the best and at a fair price.
Reasonably spaced sites with some open pull throughs and some woodsy back-ins. We stayed an extra night because of the forecast of a tornado watch in the direction we wanted to head. The heavy rains came in a deluge and this rv park drained really well. The next morning there was hardly a puddle. The only minor complaint I have is that they charge $2 extra if you run your air conditioner. To me that's petty.
Even though there are no hookups available or showers, this National Park campground 7 miles from Gatlinbug was the best "non hookup" campground we've ever stayed at. The sites are big, woodsy and many are on the river. Our river site was so very peaceful and relaxing. Fly fisherman, the sound of the roaring river and a campfire at night.
The sites are a little close together but many RV parks in the Pigeon Forge have sites even closer. There is a scenic little creek that runs behind some of the sites. Security is excellent. Owner/managers are doing a fine job.
We agree with previous posters that new mgmt seems really nice with big plans for the future. We also can understand that it's difficult to get everything fixed up from the previous owners right away. However, they really need to focus on three specific items. First, regrade the sites. They are too unlevel. Second, eliminate the side by side sites. There are two rows of the most crowded side by sides I've ever had to stay in. Since this KOA's wifi only worked in the side by sides we had to accept this crowded situation. Third, add a couple of extra towers so wifi can work in the much nicer, wooded sites further away from the office. When these three improvements are made it could get a 9 ranking, in my view.
This is a better than average public campground with the most spacious sites we've ever seen. Most are grassy and a lttle levelling is need in many. Our site was 75 feet by 75! Most others are 50-75 feet wide. We were there in a fringe season and the park was only 10% full but I think they might be full every night in the summer.
This was a good location that gave us reasonable driving access to the Antietam Battlefield and the historic city of Harper's Ferry. Owners, management and staff were terrific.There was a lot of fringe season construction going when we were there. This place is very nice and will get even better with all the improvements, including what appears to be a huge water slide going in. I would stay here again. Families will love it. One constructive note. They do offer wifi but you have to pay an outside vendor to get online. They should consider making it free like so many other rv parks are doing.
This park overrated as a 5. Many sites are really unlevel and not very long. Manager tried to charge me more than what my reservation had confirmed. Also, while they advertise free wifi, I was only 3 rows from the office and couldn't get a strong enough signal. This was disappointing becuse free wifi was the reason I picked this park. $34 was too much for off season rates.
This is definitely the place to stay when visiting Wash DC. The park has everything including regular bus service to the Metro. The site price is the most we ever paid but we'd do it again. Also, they offer a dog walking service for a minimal cost. The woman who does this is a real animal lover and can be trusted to go into your RV to get the dogs and gve them a good walk.
This park is a little better than average. Some pull throughs but the best sites are back-ins in the trees. We stayed only for one night as we were passing through, but would consider staying longer on a future trip.
This is not only Florida's best state campground but maybe the best state park campground in the USA. Frommer's guide gives it a nbr 1 rating in six different categories of Florida campgrouds. This place is a jewel.
Since Hurricane Katrina most RV parks in the area that survived the hurricane were overcrowded and messy due to FEMA trailers. However, this RV Park is maintaining order and cleanliness. Kudos to the management for operating successfully under difficult situations. The sites are a little close together but satisfactory. I would stay here again.
We are at this RV Park as I write this review thru their WiFi system. The sites are very rustic with lots of trees and privacy. Not all sites get the WiFi because of the density of the trees. TV antenna will pick up 4 stations. The owners are very accommodating in letting you pick out the site you want. We're here for 5 nights.
This small campground is not really a resort and the sites aren't all that level but it is very peaceful. Some sites are on the water and virtually all sites have a lake view. Really good fishing with a boat ramp. The bird-life abounds around this lake. Spokane folks like to keep it a secret. Now it isn't.
